haven't made the transition from CD audio to DVD audio, but have been using DVD for backup of lossless files; don't know if i can admit total satisfaction with the backups however, since i just discovered this week that 3 of the DVDs that i had backed up shows to are inaccesible and/or corrupted in some way. Didn't lose any GD/JGB stuff since they are all on the external, but did lose a bunch of great Jazz, some Jimi, a couple of Ramones shows (weeping uncontrollably here) and oh most terrible, some very cool Pere Ubu shows. Most fortunately, i still have access to my Partridge Family and Menudo shows, and all my sweet Cindarella live stuff.

Please tell me the Bay City Rollers survived. I could never have Another Saturday Night if they didn't.

Truly sorry about the other stuff though. Unfortunately it does happen - usually from cheap disks though.

Thanks man, guess i'll have to look into another brand and better quality. I am guessing however, that the problem may stem from leaving the disks "open" for further additions, rather than closing out the data. I say this because those seem to be the only disks that i had a problem with. And i should have known since several years ago when the 3.5 floppy became rather useless and i switched over to using a rewritable CD and drive for working with various documents, and had the same problem, and was told by an IT friend that it's not uncommon for corruption/inaccessibility to occur on disks that are left "open". Anyway, lesson learned i suppose. And to ease your mind, and let you get back to enjoying your Sat nites, all my Bay City Rollers stuff is backed up like ten times, on every sort of device available. I mean, really, can't be too careful with such genius pop tunes.

tiger ... no, it's probably my own stupidity, or cheap quality disks as deadmax pointed out; however, an external drive certainly wouldn't be a bad investment, and prices, from what i can see, have come seriously down; check out newegg.com, as they generally have some good deals and sell all the major brands and devices:

Tiger--you have helped me before so I hope you won't mind another dumbass question: bear in mind I am a software idiot. I have a new system and it came with 'Sonic' software that allows me to create music DVDs, BUT thus far I cannot play them on any of my current DVD players (which are just cheap, 'movie' style players). Does your post imply that there are currently, but expensive, DVD audio players out there that would play these DVDs? That would be great--an entire wav file show on a single disk with no breaks, etc.

Is that what you are talking about--that such players exist and are getting cheaper? Sorry for the lame questions, but I really am a Pigheaded Luddite with virtually no computer skills...

hey william,some dvd player don't support dvd audio.players that do have a logo that says dvd audio or blueray,sacd.yamaha has a 5 disc dvd changer that plays dvd audio,blueray,sacd and regular audio cd for under 500 dollars at best buy.as of now i can only play my dvd audio on my samsung external dvd drive,i was able to cram 3 shows of wave files on one disc.no more 3 cd for one show and the drums and space is no longer missing with the new seemless upgrades that charlie miller and others are doing.nice to have 3 shows on one disc with no breaks.it's the future and just a matter of time before cd's become relics.

See my post in the 'Do You have this problem?' thread. Works great for me. Arbuthnot's mentions Newegg and they're a good site. Didn't purchase from them 'cause they were out of stock on my choice, but they're a great resource.
